Interesting article but they did not include the way I learned from Melissa Morgan-Oakes in her TAAT TU sock book. If I remember correctly, she gives credit to someone else for the method and I find it works well and when I've taught others, they liked it also.

I still find the simplest method is to work into a crochet chain. Chain half the stitches, knit a row in the top loops, then one in the bottom loops. Caroline Markey does a demo on YouTube.

Yes, thank you!! That is the one I use and teach and gives a lovely toe w/o ridges, Kitchener, or anything else that i don't like. I learned with 6 on each needle when finished but have figured out socks fit my feet better with 10 or even 12 on each needle. Try it, you just might like it!

That is the one I use and teach in all my classes.
